Great one about Fatherhood .

Reading Pleasure

Inflated Fatherhood
 
Sharp pangs
Of pain,
Breathless
Unbearable,
Heart wrenching,
Fist clenching
Face contorting,
Body overladen
Sweet agony,
 
A searing tear
A cry
From the
Swollen gut
Heard
By the
Perpetrator
He paces
The nearby
Seedy joint
Bath in sweat
Of anticipation
Mingled
With confusion;
 
Push, push,
It is almost here;
One final push.
Whoosh!
It is
A she
Or he.
Does it
Really matter?
 
Ah, she closes
Her eyes
In silent prayer;
He pumps
Inflated chest 
Confusion
Giving way
To misplaced
Pride.
 
A father
Is he
Who loves
Cares
Nourishes
Not he
Who
Pumps
Puffs
Inflated ego
